Heavy metal titans Metallica, fresh from headlining the Reading and Leeds Festivals, are to play an incredibly intimate show for BBC Radio 1 on September 14.
The exclusive gig will take place at the BBC’s Radio Theatre in London, where Radiohead played a similar album launch show earlier this year.
Fans are able to register for the lottery style tickets from the Radio 1 website here.
The lucky 200 or so fans will be selected randomly when registration closes this Friday (Sept 5) at 7.30pm.
The gig by Metallica will be broadcast as part of a night of programming devoted to the band on the station. All four members will also be interviewed.
The full broadcast scheule which will start at 7pm, will include Lars Ulrich’s personal guide to Metallica, new album tracks previewed from Death Magnetic and a documentary about the veterans past, present and future.
